* At the 2013 ''Money in the Bank'': Why was AJ stupid enough to attack Del Rio with the Divas title even though she knew it would cost Ziggler the match? By that point, Del Rio was heel and Ziggler face, but AJ remained a heel. AJ attacked Del Rio ''to intentionally cost Ziggler the title''.

* The Big Show's betrayal at ''Over The Limit 2012''. Most people would think that it was a nonsensical Russo-esque swerve, with Big Show aligning with Laurinaitis despite the fact that the latter humiliated and fired the former for making fun of his voice. But remember that Big Show said his turn was based on the lack of sympathy he got from the rest of the face roster. Since Johnny's job was on the line with his match against Cena, and he couldn't use any outside assistance from his allies or they would lose their jobs. Since firing someone close to him would come off as suspicious, he knew he had to get rid of a face, and shortly before the event, trick him into believing nobody cared about him anymore and that even Cena showed no real sympathy for him, as evident by treating his feud with Laurinaitis as a joke. With the "iron-clad contract" Laurinaitis promised him if he helped him win, Show would be able to get his revenge on Cena and then on everyone else who failed to stand up for him. And Johnny would have found a way to save his job again.
* Why was Eve, despite being a heel by that time, suddenly back of Zack Ryder's side for the 7-on-7 tag match at ''WrestleMania 28''? She was just a mole for Team Johnny the entire time! When Zack and Eve did the "woo-woo-woo" taunt, it forced the referee to escort Eve out of the ring. This distracted Zack and allowed the Miz to hit a Skull-Crushing Finale and get the pinball for the win. ''That was her plan all along.''

Added DiffLines:

* First and foremost, the logo. The company's name is "WWE," but their logo only says "WW." Where is the E? Well, try tilting the logo sideways (toward the right,) and you can find where the E is.

* Many complain that Dean hasn't defended his US title as much as a he should, but it makes perfect sense given that they were with Wrestling/TheAuthority between August of 2013 and April of 2014. They protected him and made sure he didn't have as many defenses in order to avoid a repeat of Seth's and Roman's loss of their Tag Team titles in the hand of Wrestling/CodyRhodes and Wrestling/{{Goldust}}. Said loss happened because the Authority wanted to punish Cody and Goldust. Right after their defection, Dean had to defend his US title in a Fatal Four Way.

* On the September 2nd, 2013 episode of Raw, we find out that Triple H approved the match between CM Punk vs Curtis Axel and Paul Heyman. Why? Punk's obsession with Paul Heyman borders on Tunnel Vision. He is ignoring everything else that is going on in the company. Think about it; Triple H ''wants'' Punk's focus to be on Paul Heyman. Remember Punks promo on Raw that kick-started the Summer of Punk? Imagen if Punk started to focus on what was happening to Daniel Bryan?

Not only that, but by the end of the year, after the rivalry with Heyman was over, Punk did indeed set his sights on Triple H and The Authority.

* Some fans were pretty miffed at first when, after a few weeks of Wrestling/JustinGabriel taking "All About the Power" as his theme song, David Otunga and Michael [=McGillicutty=] would take it on and Gabriel would switch to a production theme, because of the drums and chanting fitting the African-rooted Gabriel. But the lyrics are all about someone feeling powerful, like they're head and shoulders above any adversaries. Not only was this far more {{heel}} than {{face}} (Gabriel was in the middle of a HeelFaceTurn), it fit Otunga's character to a tee, both in a political sense (Harvard law grad) and in a physical sense (bodybuilder). Where this starts ''really'' going into FridgeBrilliance is the similarities between Otunga and BarackObama: both are Harvard graduates. Both have African sounding last names that start with 'O' and and end with 'a'. And both have ''Kenyan fathers''. Suddenly the African-sounding theme doesn't belong to Gabriel so much after all. However, he actually is ''from'' there, specifically UsefulNotes/SouthAfrica, as opposed to the American-born Otunga.

* Alicia Fox didn't start appearing as a face and heel at random until after she had suffered a long losing streak. Quite a possible hint that she wasn't all there to begin with - and she did throw a rather big tantrum after losing a match as early as 2010. So those can come across as subtle foreshadowing for her VillainousBreakdown in 2014.
* Charlotte's FaceHeelTurn and eventual HeelFaceTurn on NXT. It's quite possible she linked up with Summer and Sasha because she was ambitious enough to want to go to the top - and Summer and Sasha were getting shit done. However it's likely she quickly realised what a nasty piece of work the two of them were. When she finally got to the top, she had nothing to fear and was able to break away from Sasha. Her face turn seems to be that she remembered what a good friend Bayley had been to her when she first debuted - and found herself unable to let someone else be a victim of Sasha's meddling.

* Following Seth Rollins's attempt to cash in his Money in the Bank contract on Brock Lesnar, a lot of people were surprised that the Authority not only didn't seem to mind that one of their own had attacked their hand-picked champion, they actually defended Seth Rollins from Dean Ambrose and John Cena. Then you realize that the Authority's goal hadn't been to get the belt onto Lesnar, it had been to get the belt off of Cena, and had Seth been successful, he would have been champion and the feud would have changed from Lesnar vs Cena to Lesnar vs Rollins. And no matter who wins, the Authority wins, and Cena is out of the title picture.

** And the change in his relationship with the Little Jimmy entity inside his head shortly after his face turn was his strange way of recognizing the fans' re-acceptance of him after he was stabbed InTheBack by TheMiz over JohnCena's words.

* An episode of ''Raw'' ended with Kane having EveTorres cornered backstage, cowering and screaming. The next week she passionately kisses JohnCena in the "heat of the moment". The next week she reveals she had been using JohnCena and ZackRyder all along. She gets dubbed a "Hoeski" and publicly shamed by Cena. It's heavily implied that Kane ''raped'' her. We could have been booing the actions of a rape victim - who had possibly gone mad from the experience.
